Auto Accident Claims
Our Tallahassee Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
If you've been involved in a serious car accident, you will likely
have to navigate the confusing auto accident claims process. It's
important to understand the process because many accident victims make
mistakes during it that can compromise their case if they decide to file
a personal injury lawsuit.
- The following missteps are harmful, but also easily preventable, with the
help of an experienced Tallahassee personal injury lawyer from Shapiro
Law Firm, P.A.:
Don't Leave Anything Undocumented: If you are ever in a car accident, documenting as much of it as possible
helps ensure that your rights are protected. At the scene, you should
take pictures from multiple angles and record or type notes about what
you recall into your phone. Many accident victims are surprised to find
that their memories of the event fade with time, and crucial evidence,
therefore, sometimes slips away. It's also important to report the
accident to the police and your insurer as soon as you can.
Don't Incriminate Yourself: Regardless of who you believe was in the wrong, you need to be careful
not to admit fault even in the slightest when making auto accident claims.
You should review your insurance policy and, if you think your claim might
not be covered, talk to an attorney before making an official statement.
On a similar note, you should never make statements to a representative
from the other driver's insurance company without speaking to an attorney
Don't Rule Out Seeking Help: Legal advice can only help in this kind of situation, especially if costly
damage or injuries occurred. Don't hesitate to contact a lawyer if
you have questions or concerns about your rights or how to proceed with
the auto accident claims process.
